December Birthstone: Turquoise

December's birthstone is Turquoise. This is an opaque, light or dark blue gem. Known to hold the power of healing and protecting from evil as well as briging good luck.

What is Turquoise?
It may not be as sparkly as other gemstones, but turquoise is a beautiful semi-precious stone with an opaque greenish-blue hue. It is a very popular gemstone, and is often paired with silver in jewellery.
The colour of the turquoise can range from sky blue to green, and is dependent on the level of copper and iron present. Turquoise deposits can be found in Iran (which has been an important course for over 2,000 years), Tibet, USA, Africa and Australia.
As one of the oldest gems, turquoise has been used throughout history; from being inlaid into Tutankhamun’s iconic burial mask to being extensively used to decorate objects, mosques and other important buildings in Persia.
Turquoise Meaning

Thought to provide strength and peace, some believed turquoise would warn the wearer of danger or illness by changing colour (not completely unlikely as turquoise can change colour when worn close to the skin). It is thought to grow pale when its owner is sick or sad, completely lose colour when the person dies, and then slowly recover its colour when transferred to a new owner.
